 <h3>Broken in the merge</h3>  
 <ul>  
 <li><strike>Not possible to open multiple annotation windows (eg by selecting multiple icons in order); so not possible to test the Eliot Setzer changes which ensure that only the correct window closes when an annotation post completes)</strike> This is now testable, but it doesn't work  
 <li>Calling the tab listener setup functions on window open fails  
 <li><strike>After "Delete" annotation from sidebar, next annotation doesn't get selected</strike> Fixed in CVS  
 <li>Deleting an annotation doesn't remove the highlight. Partially fixed in CVS (highlighting is removed but there may be DOM elements which should be deleted)  
 <li><strike>Deleting an annotation from the editor window fails:  
 <pre>  
 Error: [Exception... "'openEditorWindow requires either a fragment or an existing annotation' when calling method: [nsIDOMEventListener::handleEvent]"  nsresult: "0x8057001e (NS_ERROR_XPC_JS_THREW_STRING)"  location: "&lt;unknown&gt;"  data: no]  
 Error: gPostObserver.deeleet is not a function  
 Source File: chrome://annozilla/content/editor/editor.xul  
 Line: 1  
 </pre></strike>  
 <li><strike>Lots of "this.xp has no properties" when opening an annotation by selecting the icon</strike>  
 <li>Can't call 'annotate selection' on successive occasions? (tagName has no properties) (Can't reliably reproduce)  
 <li><strike>No "Annotate Condition"/"Annotate Recommendation" on context menu</strike> (this is OK)  
 <li>Autoload of annotations shows too many annotations in sidebar (because sidebar.js and annozilla.js both get notification of annotation load?)  
 </ul>  
   
 <h3>Tested and working</h3>  
 <ul>  
 <li>Manual load of annotations into sidebar; icons, highlights, asynch load  
 <li>Annotation updating and deleting  
 </ul>  
   
 <h3>Not tested</h3>  
 <ul>  
 <li>Auto-loading of annotations  
 </ul>
